Our wines are from all around the world (and all around the province) but our heritage is pure Kitsilano—family-owned and community-minded. We were one of the first private wine stores in B.C. when we started with a limited inventory in a modest space back in 1986, and we're proud to say we've grown up in the neighborhood. At the Broadway International Wine Shop, you'll find something for everyone and every budget. You'll find exotic specialty wines. You'll find innovative releases from boutique producers. You'll find the right-priced bottle for that backyard barbeque. You'll find new discoveries at our weekend tastings. One thing you won't find, though, is an attitude. Because to us, good wine is not about snobbery—it's about sharing a passion for all the good things in life that are worth raising a glass to.

Every Sunday, 2-5pm we hold tastings that explore the world of wine! We always have 3-5 bottles open along with some of our amazing cheeses by Les Amis du Fromage.

This Week, Sunday January 8th, we are exploring an off-dry blend from the Okanagan's family-owned, Arrowleaf Cellars, First Crush White (Pinot Gris, Bacchus, Auxerrois). Delicious on it's own or paired with seafood, spicy dishes or poultry.

Second on the list is going to be the Arrowleaf Cellars single varietal, Pinot Noir. This wine is medium-bodied with smooth tannins, raspberry and cherry aromas. Yes, this would be perfect with poultry, salmon or a mushroom risotto!

The next place our palate will be journeying to is all the way to Portugal, to try the Flor de Crasto from the Duro DOC. This represents great value for a full bodied red that has loads of dark fruit, spice along with earthy notes of leather an tobacco.

Hope to see you here!

A capture of snowy New Year's Eve in the heart of Kits // It's not often that we stop and take in the moment, not to mention that it heavily snowed in Vancouver. New Year's Eve at the shop was so much fun ~ loved the visits, toasts, hugs and later breaking into song + dance! As we left for the night, we looked back and took in that moment. What a great night it was to cap off 2016, and now we say hello to 2017!

"A shop for wine lovers."

It’s a phrase that has been under our name for decades now. But it’s more than just a slogan—it has been our defining philosophy since we opened our doors over 30 years ago. We love what we do, and we love providing a gathering place for friends and neighbours who share our passion for the life-enhancing qualities of a good glass of wine.

Our selections come from all around the globe but our heritage is pure Vancouver—family-owned and community-minded. We were one of the first private wine stores in B.C. when we started back in 1986, a genuine mom-and-pop operation (with help from grandparents, aunts, uncles, and kids), and we're honoured to say we've grown up in the neighborhood.

Today, the next generation of family owners, for whom the wine shop was a second home, are bringing their families into the business too. We are continuing and expanding the tradition of local family ownership, with deep roots in the community, and we are continuing the tradition of bringing a world of wine home to Kitsilano.

Not only that, we’re always looking to share some of the more interesting offerings from artisans close to home. Not just winemakers, but specialty cheese merchants, confectioners, chocolatiers, cookbook authors—we have made it our mission to make our little shop a home to those who are passionate about the finer, and tastier, things in life.

At the same time, we are not an “exclusive” wine dealer. We want to bring this passion for pleasure to everyone. At the Broadway International Wine Shop, you'll find something for every taste and every budget. You'll find exotic specialty wines. You'll find innovative releases from smaller boutique producers. You'll find the right-priced bottle for that backyard barbecue. You'll find new discoveries at our weekend tastings.

One thing you won't find, though, is an attitude. Because to us, good wine is not about snobbery—it's about sharing a passion for all the good things in life that are worth raising a glass to.

That’s what we have been about, since 1986. A place where you can gather with friends and discover the best that is on offer from around the world and down your street. Whether you are a serious collector looking for an exciting special vintage, or a casual imbiber looking for just the right bottle to uncork with dinner tonight, we are here to help.

What’s more, we are neighbours. The Broadway International Wine Shop is not a franchise. There is no out-of-town head office. We are local, independent and family owned. We have been a part of the fabric of this community for decades and we are proud to say we have earned the right to use that phrase we display under our name. If you live in this area and love wine and care about supporting neighborhood family businesses, this is your home too. In Vancouver, we have been, and always will be, a shop for wine lovers.

Feeling the love + friendship // A BIG heartfelt thank-you to everyone who came out to celebrate our 30th year anniversary at our Christmas Market! It was an amazing whirlwind of a day and it was great to see family, friends, wine shop alumni and so many amazing customers. It brought tears to our eyes — even to our brother, Jay ;) — with all the hugs + kisses, kind words and sharing of memories spanning back to day one. You've been there for our highs and lows, been there for our graduations, retirements, births and more. Literally, you've watched us grow-up in the neighbourhood and we can not thank you enough for all the love and support over the last 30 years! Cheers to the last 3 decades, but most importantly, cheers to all of you!

Happiest of holidays from our family to yours,
The Broadway Wine Shop ❤️

Special note: Thank-you @gardenpartyflowers for the beautiful mistletoe (which we feel truly captures our feelings of friendship, love and gratitude), florals and friendship!
